As expected, the Baseball Hall of Fame announced today that Randy Johnson’s plaque when he’s inducted this summer will feature him wearing an Arizona Diamondbacks hat.

“After reflecting the last week and conferring with the Hall of Fame, we’ve come to the decision that the Diamondbacks logo on my Hall of Fame plaque makes the most sense,” Johnson said in a statement. “I want to express my most sincere thanks to all the teams I played for – Montreal, Seattle, Houston, the New York Yankees and San Francisco – and particularly all of the fans for supporting me. I’m very humbled by this honor.”

Johnson spent the most time with the Mariners – 10 seasons. He posted a 130-74 record with a 3.29 ERA with the Mariners, winning a Cy Young in 1995 and helping lead the Mariners into the playoffs. But he was even more dominant in his eight seasons with Diamondbacks, posting a 118-62record with a 2.83 ERA. He won  four straight Cy Young Awards from 1999-2002 and helped lead Arizona to the 2001 World Series title.

Here’s his career numbers by team …

“The Museum staff works with each inductee by suggesting an appropriate logo option, or no logo at all,” said Jeff Idelson, President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in a statement. “For those whose most compelling contributions clearly took place with one team, a logo makes sense. For those whose careers were built significantly among multiple teams, not having a team logo is equally acceptable. Regardless of the selection, a Hall of Famer belongs to every team for which he played or managed, as well as every fan who followed his career.”

Mariners fans will likely get a Seattle cap on a hall of fame plaque next season when Ken Griffey Jr. is inducted.

So Robinson Cano’s toe seems to be fine and his swing is in midseason form. Cano went 4-for-4 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in Estrellas Orientales’ 10-4 win over Gigantes del Cibao.

In three winter league games, Cano is 6-for-11. With the win, Estrellas advanced to the Dominican League championship. They will play again on Saturday.   As part of his agreement with the Mariners, Cano would be allowed to play in any postseason games as well.
